A Very Long Engagement

You know the rules. And you know how to break ’em. (Besides, first date salads are for wussies.)

Good thing new joint D.B.A. (doing business as) Barbecue has written a saucy new playbook.

Restaurant vets Matt Coggin, Doug Morgan, and James Ehrlich join forces for traditional pit grub — brisket, baby backs, and sweet and spicy signature sauces — that requires more than a few polite napkin dabs at your kisser. Sides like deep-fried corn on the cob and tomato, cucumber, and onion salad round out the elbows-on-the table vibe.

Wash everything down with Southeastern beers, novelty sodas, and cocktail doozies like the pickled moonshine martini. You read right: Jimmie Johnson moonshine, dry vermouth, and pickle juice.

No need to take things slow.

D.B.A. Barbecue, 1190 North Highland Avenue, suite b, Virginia Highland (404-249-5000 or dbabarbecue.com).
